Discover IT & cyber apprenticeships at Gloucestershire College’s free webinar for employers

Gloucestershire College’s Business Hub team is hosting a free webinar for employers to discover their specialist IT and Cyber apprenticeships, including their brand new degree programmes.

 All businesses have had to adapt rapidly to move online this year. One of the biggest challenges facing many employers is now sustaining these new ways of working in a safe, secure and effective way.

Does your business have the necessary IT and technical resources to maintain your new online systems and communication methods?  Are you agile enough to rise to any new challenges that may come in the future?

That’s where Gloucestershire College come in. They are training future IT and cyber specialists through apprenticeships and can help your business develop the tech talent you need in house. Plus, with new government incentive payments of up to £3,000 per apprentice hired, there has never been a better time to recruit a new member for your team.

Julie Tegg, Director of Apprenticeships and Employer Training at Gloucestershire College, will be hosting the webinar joined by Myra Billinghurst, Head of the GC Business Hub team. Together, Julie and Myra have a wealth of experience, knowledge and advice to offer local employers to maximise the benefits of apprenticeships.

Julie Tegg, Director of Apprenticeships and Employer Training said: “Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 or over and are not just for school leavers or entry level qualifications. Even experienced professionals can use apprenticeships to train and learn new technical skills. Our IT and Cyber apprenticeships range from Level 3 to degrees in specialised areas meaning your business can find the perfect fit for your requirements. Paid for by your apprenticeship levy or either 100% or 95% funded through the government, apprenticeships are a very affordable way to train both your current staff and new recruits. Apprenticeships are proven to increase productivity, motivation and morale among your staff. With the new incentive payments of up to £3,000 per apprentice hired, it’s a win-win for businesses in these unprecedented times.”
